Celebrating Bangla New Year (Nabo borsho, as called in Bangla) is a gala festival for Bangladeshi people. A spectacular fare was arranged where students and put up an excellent cultural show. Parents were invited to see what their children have learnt. At the end of the program we saw proud parents were bragging to each other how brilliant their children were doing.
